Battleborn Open Beta Now Available on PS4, Xbox One

    Following its timed-exclusive release for PlayStation 4 last week, the open beta for Borderlands developer Gearbox Software's new shooter Battleborn will soon be available on all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will go live on the new platforms today at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST. 
   If you haven't been following the game closely, it's a new team-based shooter that has some elements of MOBAs, though it isn't itself a MOBA. 

   The beta consists of two story missions, two competitive multiplayer modes, and all 25 launch characters, though some of these need to be unlocked before they can be played. You can also get a taste of three progressions systems in the game. However, none of your progress will carry over to the full game. Everyone who plays the Battleborn open beta can also earn some character skins by completing the challenges laid out in the image above. The Battleborn open beta runs through April 18 on all three platforms.
